Electronic Records Accessibility and Renaissance Faire
On Wednesday, November 20th, Jason Kaltenbacher will give a presentation about Electronic Records Accessibility. The presentation will take place in VCARA on SLIS Island in Second Life. The SURL is: http://slurl.com/secondlife/SJSU%20SLIS/54/29/33. The basis for the presentation is below:
This VCARA event will discuss records management efforts to support the accessibility of electronic records. Records Managers work to standardize and ensure confidence in our internal business accessibility needs and practices as well as e-discovery and the legal process. Mitigating liability and promoting risk management is an underlying theme to what records managers offer as information professionals. The speaker will introduce these concepts and then lead a discussion.
Although space is virtually unlimited in Second Life, we do ask that you RSVP for the presentation by e-mailing the VCARA Student Assistant, Kevin Dompier, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another event is happening in Second Life before the Fall Semester is in the books. Lori Bell, an SJSU Instructor of LIBR 287: Tale of the Tudors Second Life Class, is holding a Renaissance Faire, along with her students, from December 1-4 in Tudor Village. Tudor Village is located right next door to VCARA in Second Life. Everyone is invited to attend. For more information on this Faire being put on by The Tale of the Tudors Class, please look at the Immersive Second Life Courses tab on the VCARA blog: http://slisapps.sjsu.edu/blogs/wp/vcara/.
New to Second Life? Feel free to e-mail the VCARA Student Assistant, Kevin Dompier, at email@example.com to set up an orientation. The orientation will go over the basics of Second Life (talking, walking flying, etc) and answer any questions that you have.
